Dangers of Part Worn Tyres
Many people are still unfortunately purchasing part worn tyres and this is resulting in many motorists driving with dangerous & unsafe tyres.... it’s the only part of the car touching the road and keeping you safe!!
Part worn tyres are part worn because they are another motorist’s scrap tyre! People looking to save a few pounds on the running costs of their car are putting themselves at risk by buying part-worn tyres and most do not even meet the minimum legal requirements. A study has revealed that 90% of part worn tyres are ‘dangerous’ and should never be on UK roads. Many part worn tyres have been 'repaired' in an unsafe manner, or have underlying damage, so if it looks ok on the outside there may still be problems underneath and in the sidewalls.
Part worn tyres work out expensive per mm of tread, and even more expensive if they cause loss of vehicle control!
Examples of part worn, you wouldnt drive around with these if knew what damage they could do

What our customers think
“Honest, trustworthy company. They had my car all morning and had plugged it in to their computer diagnostic machine looking into a problem. Emma (receptionist) rang me., said they couldn't fix it so recommended me to a specialist, she had already contacted them and told them to expect me and DIDN'T CHARGE ME A PENNY for their own investigations. I use them often and Would use them every time ! ”
“Polite efficient trustworthy service.”
“I left my house early in the morning to see I had a very flat, rear passenger side tyre. I googled local tyre companies & HiQ popped up. I called them about 9:30am & by 11am they'd sent a guy out to tske my tyre off, go back to their depot with it, repair it & return to my house. Many companies would have charged me for a new tyre, repaired my punctured one & sold it as a part worn tyre at their garage. Very honest company, you get a lot of crap service these days from companies that know you're not clued up on their particular industry but fair play to HiQ, best service I've had anywhere for a long time. Highly recommended.”
